  1. chrisr's two wheeled stuff

    yea id wait and just put money aside and then do heaps of cool shit at ones. The best barrel kits for these from all my research are the polini Corsa, which are about $300 for the barrel and piston kit etc. because of the mission of tuning these things your best to save up and do cylinder / carb& manifold / exhaust all at ones, then tune your gearing to get it spot on.
  2. chrisr's two wheeled stuff

    choice man! sooooo many opportunities for these things. im have an af18 in my nifty and after nothing but a chinga pinga variator and $8 cdi it does about 75kmh pretty easily. Raizer is the man to talk to about scooter tuning, $5-700 thrown at this thing and you will have it pulling sick wheelies and doing well over 100kmh. if for some reason is goes nunga nunga on you i have 5-6 piston kits for one sitting on the parts shelf. playing with scoots seems to be such a new dad hobby, especially down here with us penny pinchers, shits cheap as, you can achieve lots in 30min-1hr stints in the shed and rides get you away from whinging wives, win.

    so i got a wee bit done to this thing over the holidays. completely stripped it down and gave the frame a cut and polish which has come up pretty good. decided against the clear coat, will just keep it well waxed. had some choice vintage style squishy grips turn up for my choice but unknow bars. i thought they were BMX at first but must be off something motorised as they had factory holes in them for wires to run from switchgear i stripped the lifan150 down to replace the top end, bead blasted the barrel and head and then lapped in new valves and rebuild the head with the new cam, rockers etc etc it was then i noticed the crank had about 1.5mm of side to side play, the bearings were moving in the case, an indication it had been hot / out of oil, which would explain why the top end was koozed. i went and spoke to a very highly regarded bike mechanic (ex uk husaberg MX team head mechanic and british 250cc MX champ) and he had a look at it and reckoned it use some loctite 620 high strength high temp oil resistant bearing retainer and it would be sweet as, so will go back together with a bit of that. so i split the case and pulled everything apart as i wanted to give it all a good clean, good thing i did cos there was a bit of yuck alloy paste / old oil in the oil pump and bottom of the cases. nothing a good dousing of brakekleen wont fix so yea just waiting for a couple of bits to arrive and ill throw the engine back together this weekend and paint it and get it mounted in the bike. then to start sorting the rest of it. i have a big box of bead blasted bits ready to paint, and have polished all the alloy bits so shouldn't take too long from here on. currently also hoping to track down a 14" pitbike front end, after @Shakotom showed me this photo below im kinda pining having lush front suspension and brakes

    so with the C50 project out of the way i decided i needed to build another old small capacity honda. cue this piece of shit that i managed to get for a pretty good deal - Shes a 1973 honda ST90, the big 14" wheel version of a DAX / CT70. These this are quite rare as they were only made for 3 years, and have a strong barry following in the states, so barrys heads are gunna roll when i murder it / how dare you put a chinese engine in an st90 plan is something similar along the lines of this road legal pitbike spec that does wheelies etc. like the trombone it has delicious patina, think i might get it jizzed on with a few coats of clear this time. will tidy a few things up but the frame will remain patina as. this week i got a hella deal on an OG 150cc lifan engine that had a shagged cam. these 150's stopped getting put in pit bikes a few years ago in exchange for the yx140 engines like i put in the c50, turns out the reason was cost as they lifan was much more expensive. According to pit bike barries the 150 lifan is as quick as a cammed yx140 and they have more torque / are an all round better engine. this one only cost me $80 and came with a genuine VM26 plunger type mikuni, these carbs are over $200 new. Also came with cdi, oil cooler, throttle and a bunch of other bits. I smacked an order on aliexpress today for - cam, valves, retainers, collets, valve springs, full gasket set, new piston and rings, stem seals, new rocker arms, came to a whopping $79, gotta love china engines. so yea hopefully get the engine mounted over the xmas break and a few other little bits done, in between rally car rebuilding and house renos anyway. these frames do not take a china / honda engine as they had a weird 3 bolt engine like the SL90s as opposed to 2 bolt everything else. so i need to make an adapter mount which will be a bit tricky (and no, its not the same as early ct90 / c90 etc, they are still 2 bolt). so yea, looking forward to wheelies on this thing.

    did some sweet hoons on this thing couply weeks ago down at DGR welly. Had a good ride with Russ and the boys on saturday out to makara beach and she ran without fault, its pretty deafening / hilarious to ride and gets a good share of attention. So i can tick this project off as complete, on to the G/S paris dakar resto now
  8. Blizzo's scoot hoard and projects of win

    wohooooo getting there now, one niggly job to sort was the exhaust, even with the motocross style starter and bending the exhaust as far in as i could to the engine the kick start still just hit at the end of the stroke. A bit more fiddling and some grinding of the kickstart and this is all sorted now. becuase the footpegs are spaced downwards about 10mm to clear the casings the brake pedal was too high, so i cut about 10-15mm out of this and welded the footpad back on, i also cut the pedal to bend it away so it didnt hit the casing and then welded that back together. Well the ergonomics for that are all sorted now! just the seat and side covers to go! oh and to trim the outside lugs off the front tyre so it doesnt rub like a bitch some hilarious side cover art to patch the penny pinchers theme courtesy of sparkle and my seat turned up from Craze genuine custom in bali, these seats are the lushest of lush quality, and very affordably priced. I like the look of no seat / foam on the tank, and im not phased about bum comfort but being 188cm tall i would be bent over like a maggot having a crap sitting on the tank, and need to sit just behind it, cue the craze cobra seat not mounted up yet, thats this weekends job, hoping to do a few kms this weekend to break the engine in properly and have a bit of a shakedown for DGR, much excite!

    man i have been fucking around with this thing something shocking, need to commit and just finish it as i have everything to do so now. Shed is currently taken over my honda monza red, cams C50 is in for a new exhaust treatment and sparkle has given me his CT110 to chop Quickly hacked the rear guard off sparkles CT at lunch today, looks gay as frig now with the extremely large postie seat but once he gets a new one it should be lush Mocked up my cub with sparkles brown seat off his C50, i have ordered one of the same but in black which should look pretty lush. The bars are on now but i need to cut them down as they are too wide for the wheelbase of the cub and look a bit out of proportion Scratched my head with the wires a little bit but got all that sorted the other night. I know i could get away without running a battery but it thought id be a good boy and run one, then lights can work if engine isnt running etc which could be handy at times, and the new gel battery was only 30 bucks went to put the side cover on and realised i didnt have a screw for it, bit of threaded rod and an old imperial spanner later and jobs done jim Hope sunday will be a good day, will mod bars a bit and get them straight (seems forks are slightly bent) make some changes to the exhaust and get that on properly, re jet the carb with the jets that arrived today, slap the chain on, mod the rear brake pedal then slap some gas and oil in it and go do a skid, yeowww!

    Mayyyyte most budget friendly tyre ever, shinko 241, they are a copy of a trials tyre essentially and look badass. lots of posties use them. $100 delivered for a pair. They are 2.75/17. Will look whack on a stock cub rim, but a 1.55" Ct110 rim suits them well, my rims are 1.85". On a cub these clear the forks with like 3mm on either side haha http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/motorbikes/parts-for-sale/tyres/auction-1383800501.htm

    So a wee little bit of progress on this here scootdog. Have just been chipping away an hour here on the weekends and the casual odd 40 minutes after tea / between dad duties. Smacked up a hori as number plate / brake light mount out of old spanners, should suit the theme of the bike. These have since had a grind off and a splash of acid and are sitting outside to go rusty. then next was to make some mounts off the headstuds to hold the oil cooler. Carb will be facing out the side so there is a nice spot here for it to squeeze in between the leg sheild. Man reason for the cooler was a little bit of extra oil capacity as the 140s have bugger all, also the cooling will help for occasional big rides / open road cruise speeds got the new headlight mounted up and have a nice new LED bulb in it to give it some lumenz, mocked the wheels on to see what it all looks like and im loving it! PPSC represent! Next on the todo list was the zorst, i ordered a $25 chinga pinga pit bike hi pipe and cut it up as it was cheaper than buying bends, there is a reason these are cheap tho, jesus christ they are shit, the bends are soo stretched they become panel steel spec thickness, so poose, but so cheap, it tucks in behind to clear the kickstart, i just fouls still but i have a motocross spec kick start coming that folds out further which will clear, praise jeebus for aliexpress. the muffler is a super cut down fr80 muffler with pretty much no internals so is just there for looks really / please the authorities, so will be all of the louds. Getting some bits off russell this weekend at swapmate to get the front end sorted, i have made the bar mount so once front end is done i can sit it on the ground and sort bars, then wiring, then make some doorty noises! max excite
  12. Blizzo's scoot hoard and projects of win

    still chipping away / chipping one out on this thing. More parts have arrived Headlight that isnt redic massive, have a stronger LED bulb en route for this New 428 pitch sprocket, have gone from a 41 tooth to a 34 tooth for all of the road speeds, stronger chain is ideal also importantly with the more legs on the gearing, stopping becomes a bit more of a problem, im not that good / cant polish a turb but new honda brake pads should help and probably the most exciting piece is the local wheelwright here in the ding has finished truing up my wheels. I laced them myself but probably would have been cheaper to get this barry to do the whole lot as i had a whole bunch of inners / outer spokes the wrong way around. anyway old mate here from Hamco industries / Hamco wheels saved the day. Had some sweet yarns and was a GC im loving the look of the trials tyres, cant wait to get these on the bike. gunna smash some work this weekend hopefully
  13. Blizzo's scoot hoard and projects of win

    sooooooooooooooooooo CT110 is pretty much finished so i got started on the cub. Stripped frame right down, gave it a clean and a cut. Came up looking good i think, nice and shiney but still with the rust / patina. Cam has already name her "the rusty trombone". Its going to get some teflon wax to seal it all off once its finished. So some parts have been turning up- YX 140cc with Z40 race cam 15hp motor- 1.85" black rims from malaysia- Few other bits a pieces too but nothing worth writing about yet. Got the engine mounted in the frame. Keen to stick the flywheel cover / badge onto the side of the engine cover, would be keen on one for each side if someone has one lying around from a dead engine Hopefully spend a day on it this weekend and make some good progress, deadline for 100% completion / lushness / run in is DGR but would like to get it riding quite a bit before then.
  14. Blizzo's scoot hoard and projects of win

    so not too much actual build progress has been going on for this thing but i have been aquiring a few parts. Have ordered a set of 1.85" Black rims out of Maylasia, these should be here soon, coupled with black hubs and the new chrome spokes i got they should look the businessss with 2.75" tah on the front and undecided for rear yet, wither 2.75 again of maybe a 3.00. main exciting news was a wrote a letter to NZTA asking if i could keen my chur as black plate cos black plates are cool, sent them a photo of it with the letter then like a week later i got a letter back saying i could and to take this in when you go to re register it. 5 minutes later at the local AA at $66 dollars poorer and i left with this - Pretty stoked about that, yay for the beach / cheap rego. nek on the parts hoard was a new legsheild, tick - then a new front brake cable, cush drive, and front end rebuild kit, tick have also got bars, throttle mech, have ordered an 8 pin cdi and loom, bunch of gaskets, next week ill order my 140cc GPX engine and PZ30 mikuni carb, so will pretty much have anything except a seat and tyres. dont want to rip into it quite yet as im still rebuilding a shitty old CT110 that i got, chucked a good weekend at that last week and got it all stripped and painting, just chugging away at the reassembly of that at the moment, hopefully finish up this weekend, just need to true up the rear wheel after i relaced it with new spokes, wrong thread but it doesnt have its on so here is a pic dump of that wee side project - shes a 1994 ag spec CT110 with Hilow box Pretty keen to get this C50 together and to see what it looks like with the mix of nice new parts and super patina paint, hopefully comes out as i am expecting and not just looking like a polished turd!
  15. Blizzo's scoot hoard and projects of win

    so i have been beaving away and ordered a few things for this, bars and risers are on their way, will make adapter plate soon, no one has a drawing to get one lasered do they? i picked up this lush old patina taillight / number plate light off the tard the other day also got the angle grinder out for a few minutes the other day and gave the rear guard a strip and trim, will just leave the spot wel holes / rust patch as is. Unsure if i like it. I didnt want to go staight back to the seam that everyone cuts at, i think the toilet bowl seat models look good with a bit of guard, just a bit weird how there is now a gap right and the back, maybe stretching the swingwarm an inch would fix it i dunno, will play around. as you can see i also whipped the bars off and front guard. Whats the biggest tyres you can fit on these things? 2.75 at the front and 3.5 on the rear? Hopefully ordering all the 140 stuff at the end of this week.
